Learn at your own pace

The EUMETSAT training project EUMeTrain produces self-paced learning resources. These are hosted on the EUMeTrain site

We work with the COMET program to produce self-paced learning resources. These are completely free for you to use. Register on the MetEd site. Teachers are free to use these lessons, or parts of them, in their own classes. A certificate is given for any COMET lessons and quizzes completed.

About Us

EUMETSAT training activities are designed to support the use of the EUMETSAT data products, systems and services across the member states and wider.

Meet our training team

Almost all our courses, workshops and events are delivered with, or by, a partner. In Europe we have established the EUMeTrain project who produce lessons, online courses and provide resources for forecasters and trainers. We also work closely with Eumetcal who facilitate co-ordination of training across Europe.

For training outside Europe we work as part of the WMO-CGMS Virtual Laboratory on Satellite Meteorology Training and Education (VLab).
